for the coal fields. host: our last call is from florida. good evening. caller: i was just going to comment that i just can't believe how far right winged the republican party has become. i was watching a speech by richard nixon back in the 1950's and he was talking about national healthcare and they've just gone so far to the right where they really have zero social conscience and i'm hoping obama wins. he's talking about things that are important to the american citizen. being just a war machine taking over what great britain did prior to world war ii. host: what about in terms of campaign signs or people coming to your door and the tv and the advertising in florida? caller: we've had two door knocks. what is getting my goat is the synagogues here that were always democratic are now upset with obama's relationship with gnaten i can't had you and they feel like they're not going to be protected by the united states. our country protects israel and i don't get it. i run into so many people who are $40,000 republicans and mitt romney doesn't have their best interest at heart. host: your pred

and military spending. loorow all the florida th debates. >> a discussion on the future of the republican party from washington journal, about 40 minutes. guest: including me. than romney losing. obama may have been the only democratic candidate running on a record of a weak economy and debt crisis that we face and still win. yet, he did. they did very many things that were right. you can point to a couple of things with mitt romney. he may not have been the perfect candidate for 2012 given his corporate turnaround background, secondly, he did not get something republicans have counted on and that is the white working-class voters. in states like ohio, the ads attacking mayor romney as a corporate raider and buccaneer that went on for many months put on by the obama campaign seemed to work. the white working-class vote did not turn out for mitt romney in the numbers he needed. host: you had a piece yesterday, "the survivor in chief." you know to that they expose the myth of the enthusiastic democratic voter. guest: it was a myth i subscribe to for a while. i am sure you read about this over and

welcome from the state of florida, senator marco rubio. >> thank you. i love being in ohio. my refrigeratothis is just liken florida. my refrigerator may be in florida. [laughter] our next president and vice president will be mitt romney and paul ryan. there is a lot to say. we know what this election is about. what i love most about the presidential election is that it reminds us what is at stake. it reminds us how special and unique the american story has been. there has never been a place like this in all the history of the world. the drop in history of mankind, almost everyone has been poor and powerless. the same people kept winning and everyone else was under them until america. america change that because we believe that every single human being is born with certain rights that come from god and not from the government or the president. [cheers and applause] that is what is at stake in this election right now. before as is a clear choice between very -- did a very different visions. one threat is to rob us of the many things that make this different and specials. the roa

to have made a difference. for a while it looked like that may have been the case in florida, but at this point, it's not. host: for those who don't know give us a sense of how these exit polls are put together. is there one firm that does all these polls or many? >> guest: there is one firm that does it for the networks and associated press and other people by the exit poll. but they put the exit poll together. they send people out to thousands of polling places around the country to sample voters as they come out of the polling places, they give them sample ballots and ask them to fill out showing who they voted for and a few basic demographic factors and a couple of other questions. they supplement that with a telephone survey to capture people who voted early. they put those two things together and then very importantly, they match the turnout that the exit poll predicted in a particular prinks with the actual turnout in that prep sinket so you have to wait the results so you make sure your poll is reflecting the turnout in the places you sampled. so the numbers toned shi

democrats to come out and vote as there were. florida, for example. i think it is the poster child for places where republicans were not anticipating that this new latino population would come out and vote. the latino population had a very big effect as well. democrats won house positions in places like illinois, orlando, and even miami dade. the reason why obama was able to hang on to florida was because of non-cuban hispanics and miami dade. >> i think republicans bounced back as well as they could. mitt romney won more than ronald reagan did in 1980. he did better among the college whites. obama dropped from 40 to 32. -- to 36. his margin drop by 80,000 votes since 2008. he had a lot of erosion. mitt romney had no serious plan for talking to nonwhite voters. i visited the campaign officials. they did not know the names of the hispanic outreach. one senior romney advisers said to me, "this is the last time anyone will try to do this." it was almost entirely from the votes of whites. >> looking ahead, the republican party, anytime you lose, there is rethinking. i think people thin

in florida that had been appointed by two republican governors. the point is that professionalism counts. remedies. my remarks tonight are not intended to be an argument against political appointees. rather i am arguing for moderation and balance. there is an important role for both political appointees and career civil servants. there is a contrast between the roles, too. political appointees are concerned with politics, politicians, and a command and want to change things. the career people are concerned with administration. the political people make policy as is appropriate and the career people implement those policies. the political people are concerned with change, either campaign. changing what is wrong with washington is a common theme in american politics. the career people are not concerned with continuity because they might be there for more years and they want those agencies to continue to run smoothly. they're concerned with professionals. the political people are representative of their political party and their president. career people are technical experts. political peop
